I have a problem with SATA + IDE! :((
Posted on 2004-07-31
I just bought a Maxtor SATA 120GB 6Y120MO storage device. I have another WD 120 8MB IDE storage device too.
I tried to put these to work toghether. If i let the WD to be master everything works fine. I wanted to put the SATA drive as primary so i got the WD out and installex windows XP on the SATA. After installation i put the WD back and it still boots from the IDE.
The SATA device is connected to the Serial ATA 0 on the motherboard, and the WD IDE is connected to IDE 1.
How can i make my system to boot from the SATA device????
I have: Gigabyte 7N400 Pro Motherboard.
I made all the configurations necesary under bios and i'm stuck.
